Alan Sepinwall, Daniel Fienberg, and Brian Grubb will compete in some TV trivia games to identify Westworld player piano versions of HBO theme songs, and name TV shows based on descriptions of their comic book continuations.

ย ๐Ÿ„โ€โ™‚๏ธ It's easy to bag on John from Cincinnati, but the critical re-evaluation has been that, yep, it's nonsense.

ย ๐Ÿง™๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Shannen Doherty's character in the Charmed comics doesn't actually look like her, because they were too cheap to pay her for likeness rights.

ย ๐Ÿ–– The Star Trek comics referenced in round two are way better than the ones from the 60s, which were often written by people who had never actually seen the show, and had no idea what the characters looked like!

ย โฑ Daniel didn't get points for his last lightning round question because you must wait until the question is fully read before answering and time ran out. That's the way the cookie crumbles.

ย ๐Ÿค” Remember, you only have 2 days to answer this episode's At Home Version riddle due to a bonus Wednesday episode drop.
